Coun Rollo said: “I look forward to seeing the work that has been done. We welcome any investment into Preston, especially the city centre.”

Work on the new branch took six weeks to complete and facilities include digital workstations with tablets for online banking, Express Banking with a new ATM wall, counter services for more secure transactions as well as private interview rooms.

Customers visiting the branch will be greeted in a reception area and directed to a range of tailored services depending on how they want to bank.

The branch, which employs 25 staff and is managed by Angela Sterry, will also feature a picture wall to display local community initiatives such as Santander Foundation grants.
